Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends
Just a little change
Small to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
And ever just as sure
As the sun will rise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong
Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast

Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast

    Love dosent have to always be with a prince and a princess,it can be with anyone and thats what beauty and the beast shows! That you dont need a fairytale and magic fariry god mothers to have true love or a fairytale you can make your own story! And i know that because i waited all my life for a fairytale or some type of fantasy to come true, and i finally realized that true love isent only in fairytales its in real life too!
